Liberty Trudges Through Injustice - FUCK TRUMP!Liberty Trudges Through Injustice a Wet Plate Collodion Collaborationby Shane Balkowitsch at Nostalgic Glass Wet Plate Studio, Bismarck, North Dakota

Liberty Leading the People Translated in Wet Plate CollodionWet Plate Collodion

Fifty-three collaborators came together for no other reason than  to create this image together.  This wet plate could not come at a more poignant time in our nation's history.  Lady Liberty and all that she stands for and represents is in peril.  We must come together and overcome all challenges to our freedom and the principles that this country was founded on.  I want to thank each and every person that contributed to this fabulous adventure.  I am so blessed to be on this creative path with all of you. 

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." - Thomas Jefferson
